Boycott

Boycotting the boycotters

The BDS movement wants to financially cripple Israel by banning, divesting and placing sanctions on Israel and Israeli company products.

We have our own little social justice warriors here in NZ wanting the same thing. This, apparently, will make the Israelis kowtow to them and force them out of Israel.

Well, the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, has decided to implement his own BDS scheme, against the BDS movement, banning and refusing to allow New York State to procure any services or products from organisations that are part of the BDS movement against Israel.

The coldblooded terrorist attacks in Tel Aviv this week served as a chilling reminder of the summer of 2014, when a steady rain of terrorist rockets from Gaza confined the vast majority of the Israeli population to bomb shelters and protected rooms. During a visit with a bipartisan delegation that August, I was shown a miles-long Hamas tunnel built to infiltrate Israel’s southern communities and murder their residents. The tunnel was frightening because it was the manifestation of the single-minded obsession by Israel’s enemies to destroy the Jewish state. And yet, in many ways it was not nearly as frightening as continued efforts to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel.

That is why I recently signed the first executive order by a U.S. governor to help protect Israel from these pernicious efforts to punish it economically. My order ensures that no state agency or authority will engage in or promote any investment activity that would further the harmful and discriminatory BDS campaign. New York will identify institutions and companies, with the list made available to the public and updated regularly, that engage in boycotts, divestment or sanctions activity targeting Israel, either directly or through a parent or subsidiary. All state funds will then be divested from such entities.

If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.

A good idea, implement it here

The UK government is moving to stop local councils playing in foreign policy.

Local councils in the UK are to face new curbs on their powers to divest from or stop trading with organisations or countries they regard as unethical.

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has confirmed it is drawing up new guidelines to prevent local authorities from mounting their own “boycott and sanction” campaigns.

The directions, which will be issued early in the new year, are expected to make clear that councils’ procurement and investment policies must be consistent with UK government foreign policy.   Read more »

Alert Alert DANGER we have reached Code Pink stupidity level

2013-02-09_sound_the_alarm_1

Code Pink Activists want people to boycott Israel in order to hurt its economy. How did they try to achieve this?

  • They paid to fly to Israel
  • They paid for accommodation in Israel
  • They paid for food and other items in Israel

Basically they enjoyed an Activist tourism junket and all they had to do was to take a few photos to send back home in order to justify it.

Should the left boycott America, China, Bangladesh and Morocco?

Screen-Shot-2015-11-05-at-12.58.47-PM-800x485

On this blog we have written about young children being trained from birth to hate and posed with knives in photos on social media with slogans inciting others to stab Jews and Israelis. Literally every day there is another report on my Facebook page about a stabbing in Israel.

Imagine if the All Blacks weren’t allowed to acknowledge their country?

Would we be insulted if the All Blacks played overseas but weren’t allowed to use the NZ flag, or say they are from New Zealand?

What would we say or do on the international stage if our athletes and sports people were forbidden to compete under our own flag?

We’d be outraged right?

Well have a thought for two Israeli judoka who can only compete if their flag is never flown and they never acknowledge where they are from, even on the official international website of the sport.

Israeli athletes Yarden Gerbi and Sagi Muki won bronze medals for Israel at the International Judo Federation (IJF) Grand Slam in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) over the weekend.

However, the win comes after scandal and disgrace for both UAE and the IJF. UAE originally refused visas for the Israeli team (including 2013 Rio gold medallist Yarden Gerbi) to enable them to participate in the IJF-sanctioned event.    Read more »

I’ve found a new boycot target for Tiso and Wrongly Wrongson: Twitter

Did you know Twitter is a white supremacist organisation?   Oh, you think I’m “embellishing” again.  Ok, then.

Jesse Jackson Fumes Over Twitter’s Lack of Black Employees.

…there are 35 black men and 14 black women on the payroll at Twitter, accounting for only 1.7% of total U.S. staff. However, a majority of blacks use Twitter on a daily basis. It is this disparity that infuriates Jackson so much that he is “becoming intolerant.”

Speaking to The Guardian, Jackson said:

I am very disappointed. Black people are greater users of the product and capable of doing the jobs, but there has not been an adequate commitment to hire, train and maintain [black people].

Some people call it “Black Twitter” because we over-index so much, but they still don’t hire more black people. We are becoming intolerant with these numbers, there’s a big gap between their talk and their implementation. Read more »

Former Mediaworks tea lady gets her knickers in a bunch

Ex-Mediaworks tea lady, Tara Merriman aka Bitch-pants McCrabby, has got her knickers in a bunch.

She may have become a lady of leisure, leaving to commence “study”, after scoring the talent, but she really seems to have caught a dose of the nasty.

UN Official calls for boycott of Jerusalem Post, UN then say he didn’t say boycott…uhmmm…yes he did

UN official Chris Gunness has called for a boycott of the Jerusalem Post because he got his knicker in a twist that he wasn’t asked for a quote in an article about he ineffectiveness of UNRWA.

Gunnesstweet.jpg

There it is in black and white…”Boycott the JPost!”

Can’t get much clearer than that.

The story was an op-ed by a Palestinian Arab. Op-eds obviously don’t require quotes.  The Jerusalem Post is centrist in its editorial line and hardly ultra-right. And none of that had anything to do with Bassem Eid who is neither Israeli nor right wing.

Now, the UN is far from perfect and UNRWA has been spanked of late for promoting hate and violence as well as allowing their hospitals and schools to be used by Hamas to conduct combat operations.

But blatant lies are so far beyond the line something needs to be done.  Read more »

It is deja vu all over again

I am teaching my daughter history at the moment. We have looked at the origins of WWII and are now looking at the Holocaust.

We have been studying a timeline from when Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933.

As we looked at each item and discussed it my daughter brought up the fact that some of the techniques Hitler used to destroy the Jews bit by bit were similar to those used to try to destroy Whaleoil. I am not talking about the concentration camps or genocide of course but the steps he used to turn the German people against the Jews and to render the Jews powerless to defend themselves. I had to admit that she had a point. It made me realise that these techniques were probably not invented by Hitler but in fact have been used to hurt people since the dawn of civilization.

They are perhaps the guidelines for destroying an individual or a group of people.

Auckland University goon squad defends Hamas

 

Yesterday the Auckland University goon squad were out in force  dribs and drabs protesting against Hamas..oh….I mean Israel. It did make me wonder though, as one of their chants were “Boycott genocide”. Juliet Moses confronted the rowdy teenagers and tried engage some sensible dialogue with their adult supervisor and enlighten them to a few facts about Hamas, only to be shouted down with petulant behaviour, abuse and more chanting because they didn’t like what she had to say to them. It just goes to show one thing from ‘that side’, that freedom of speech is tolerated, as long as it’s theirs.

Billy Hania the adult representing the rowdy toddlers blurted out a  delusional rant which stated that all the killing was a result of the Super Fund and other companies. It has been alleged that an Israeli chemical company that the Superannuation Fund invests in is “killing people” with white phosphorus. The trouble with that is, the IDF haven’t used it since 2009 and it is only used for smokescreens because its use as a weapon is now illegal.

Even David Shearer doesn’t know what’s going on, as is evident in his comment:

Labour defence spokesman David Shearer, who worked for the UN in some of the conflict zones where white phosphorus was allegedly used, this month called for the fund to sell its Israel Chemicals stake.

“We should be divesting from that [shareholding] immediately,” he said.

“New Zealand should not be investing in any type of munitions that can be used in the way Israel is using them at the moment.

“It is absolutely unacceptable and I think most New Zealanders would agree. I don’t believe it is right.

“There are plenty of good investments in the world without having to invest in armaments.” – source
